No, it will only accept up to 2GB (two 1GB chips)

As for the Vaio, it seems there is only one processor available for this system and it can be seen here

MOST of the time, it is not practical to upgrade a laptop since it costs so much more in parts and labor than a desktop does.

How do i reset a locked BIOS password on a Sony VAIO FS840W notebook?


Proof of purchase in extremely reasonable. How would you likeit if someone stole your machine and it was easy to break into your bank details?
Did you pay by credit card? Use that as proof of purchase.
The only way is through your Sony Service Centre.

Haha!

I had such dreams too with one of my old Vaio. I really wanted to upgrade the processor and graphic chipset. Turns out that the latter is impossible (it was soldered to the motherboard - it wasn't a graphics card, just an all-in-one chip), as for the processor I was able to take it out but I ran into several problems:
1) vaio added electronic components to the motherboard that made higher CPU speeds unachievable even if the motherboard's cipset (VIA) was able to do that.
2) the cpu maker (AMD in my case) kept telling me that their mobile cpu were custom designed for that specific laptop, so new cpu would be incompatible. Also mobile CPUs are, apparently, only sold to laptop makers, unlike OEMs... (eBay but at ur own risk!).
3) When buying a new CPU, u need to check factors such as the number of pins (mobile cpu are much smaller), voltage, current, wattage and heat dissipation (very important, ur current heat sink was designed for ur current cpu).

But maybe things have changed now. In my case, I could only upgrade the RAM and the hard-drive to larger and faster versions, and the difference was quite significant difference. Faster booting and better internet experience.
